Bush Plan to Assassinate Saddam Illegal

Executive Order 12333 signed in 1976 by President Ford has not been revoked, meaning that the attempted murder of President Saddam Hussein by US military forces is illegal under US law. The Fourth Convention of The Hague stipulates that such actions violate international law. President George W. Bush is guilty of the crime of attempted murder.

The Fourth Convention of The Hague, signed in 1907, states that the premeditated assassination of individuals is illegal under international law, which means that the strike against the bunker of Saddam Hussein at the beginning of the illegal attack on Iraq by an Anglo-American coalition, attempting to take out the Iraqi leadership, violates international law.

This administration has tried to protect American citizens from the forums of international justice, following a policy under which American citizens answer to their own country, not international tribunals. However, not even this approach will protect George W. Bush because he has also violated the laws of the USA.

President Ford signed Executive Order 12333 in 1976, which states clearly that Any official of the administration is prohibited from conspiring or involving themselves directly in assassination policies".

Oscar in Time of Plague
The 75th Oscar award ceremony will take place on Sunday, but it is going to be one of the saddest and one of the most shameful ceremonies ever held in the history of the Academy
America is a strange country: when astronauts die, a national mourning is declared in the country, but when ordinary soldiers lose their lives, presentation of Oscars is held there. The USA doesnt care about Iraqi and Iranian soldiers and civilians, but at the same time many American soldiers are and will be dying at the war as well. And it is not ruled out that some of them will fall victims right at the moment when the Academy plans to distribute Oscar awards. Academy insiders and organizers of the award ceremony laugh at all rumors saying that the ceremony will be postponed because of the Iraqi war

Dollar to Step Down Ahead of Saddam
Is it possible to avoid further dollar devaluation?
Numerous leaks of information and analysis of activities of the US authority are a sufficient basis to forecast further development of the US economic policy. This estimate is extremely important as it will further determine future situation in the world in many respects.

Shock and Awe Splits America
First victims of spread-eagleism: Phil Donahue, George Clooney
The society of average Americans is split: half of the population supports Bushs intention to overthrow Saddam Hussein without UN sanctions, and the rest protest against settlement of the Iraqi crisis by force. And it is hardly likely that the latter sympathize with Saddam: they consider Hussein a dictator and would like democratic changes to be started in Iraq (it means that institutes of the civil society must be created there, free elections are to be introduced, etc.), but they think this must be done in an evolution way. However, the propagandistic mechanism of spread-eagleism has reached its peak in the USA: everybody is speaking only about Iraq in the newspapers, on the radio and on TV, but this is mentioned from a patriotic point of view only. Liberals are not wanted now
